spending. "the wall street journal" gave a report that the amount of spending under the obama administration and a timeout to say was the slowest rate of growth, and even that's not sure. the reason i'm in this whole situation run of congress is because this country has turned in the wrong direction. this country is turned away from the middle class and forgot what made this gray. it's not fair anymore and people understand they are not getting the same opportunity. it's time for the country to dream big again and believe in the middle class and bring people forward into the middle class. we need to educate our children. we need to rebuild infrastructure, communication and transportation structure. we have to take care of older people and make sure we all have an opportunity to succeed. this election is about fairness, opportunity and the selection is who will have the site envisioned to go forward and ask for your vote. >> moderator: on behalf of or sponsor any error he new hampshire and wbin come would like to thank the candidates and you for joining us for this evenings deb

made more attempts to -- do you believe the obama administration mishandled this leading up to the attack and what could have been done better and should be done better going forward? >> absolutely it was mishandled and to learn there were cries for help, literally people asking for additional support and that they went unanswered, that's unacceptable. when we get back to washington, we will conduct oversight hearings and make sure our ambassadors and the conflicts are protected. we have to make sure they have what they need and the republican leadership at $300 million from embassy security. we need to make sure we have the resources and protection they need. i don't think there is any other explanation other than it was not handled properly -- was not handled properly and i believe the congress's oversight capacity needs to make sure this doesn't happen again. it is challenging many going to these other countries but on the anniversary of my/loan, we should have been on heightened security. i would make sure those abroad to support our interest and other countries and try

-dollar website. one day i went there and saw how much money i spent -- how much money the obama administration spent. it's a $531 million. that stimulus bill didn't work at all. that was a complete failure and waste of money that we are still paying interest on. >> moderator: we call the time. our next question. >> moderator: if nothing happens, this congressional district is scheduled to have a large number of post offices close. what would you propose to do with to deal with the debt of the post offices? gill: i think a large part of the debt relating to the postal service is due to the fact that career politicians in washington dc set up a scheme by which the postal service had to fund 75 years into the future with respect to retirement and future pension costs in health care costs. i think it would go a long way towards restoring solvency and it being endorsed by numerous workers. but look towards dinner for them when i get washington dc. davis: when one runs for congress the better part of the decade, what has to happen when we talk about overall spending in washington? we have to ensure
